PM Tips  1. Set Clear Expectations for Change-Orders With Difficult Clients  Creative teams and in-house agencies must develop standards to create client accountability. Client behaviors are a challenge for 72 percent of creative service teams because there is no recourse for misuse or abuse.

If there is any increase in job duties or the job is sent back into the work queue, there will be an additional monetary charge. Being clear upfront will help with difficult clients who, with their constant revisions and scope changes, can turn a two day project into a three week project.
